You're exaggerating. There's nothing wrong hard-coding things like 
number of seconds in a minute (60). While it's not as cast in stone as 
60 seconds in a minute, I don't see anything wrong with hardcoding that 
"localhost" means the local host.

BTW, do we have anything in place to stop any user on the same host to 
send bogus stat messages to the stats collector?
